The gel press should be assembled as shown in the sketch. Please note that the arrow on the body of the Gel Chamber must point downward towards the thread of the Funnel. This will provide a smooth transition through which the gel will pass.
It is also suggested that several “gel only” samples be tried first to get the feel of how the press will operate.
It is very important that the Gel sample tube be oriented in the correct way. Since both ends of this tube are opened, the “bottom end” with the special finish is opposite to the catalog mark on the tube. This is the end that must be inserted into the bottom of the Funnel. The special end finish is necessary to allow the End Plug to seal the tube without breaking it.
